Two RoadsNov 07, 2023
Some of my favorite memories of school were forays into the magic language of poetry. This week's podcast was about direction, and allowing God to determine our destination. That level of trust, of dependence upon our Father, is not without its challenges and choices, and often we are trying to discern between two good options. The Wisdom of the Father, if we are patient, will be revealed as the better of the choices. And sometimes, God's answer is, "You choose! I'll be with you all the way!" Thinking about these kinds of choices reminded me of the well-known poem, The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost:
The languaging is so beautiful.... you can almost see the yellow of birch or alder trees, the paths between them stretching out toward an unknown destination. I'm so grateful that God knows what the roads before me hold, and which road is best to travel with Him!
Being a poetry lover, I found this article about the poem interesting: Robert Frost: “The Road Not Taken”.
I often wonder which poets I'll meet in Heaven; King David, for sure, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is said to have believed. I know there'll be others. In the meantime, God's common grace has allowed such beauty to both be created and be enjoyed by believers and nonbelievers alike. We are so blessed!
Jeremiah 42:3 says, "Pray that the Lord your God will tell us where we should go and what we should do.” Which road are you taking today?
